On my second trip, i stayed in the same hotel, but i was with my girlfriend, so the experience was also unique. Travelling with different people to the same place will inevitably give a different impression on you. Hiroshima rather than taking the train. Izumo and spent the morning and early afternoon driving. Hiroshima from the north-west was amazing. We drove through a tunnel that basically cut through a mountain and under a park. We headed straight to the station to get some tickets, which we failed at, and then on to the hotel. Japanese cities, especially around the station. B without killing yourself. We thankfully arrived at our hotel safely. Park, which made for a great staging area for our adventures in the city itself. It is the same city that i remember when i first visited. Things look familiar, and staying in a newer area meant that i could get familiar with the surrounding area a lot more. Park is still a must see for a first time visitor. The need to educate oneself on the horrors of an atomic bomb in an urban area is something that must be seen and experienced. The symbols you see are all of peace and destruction. You will see objects of twisted metal, earthen mounds to symbolize death, and various objects to symbolize the hope for peace. On this trip, i had a chance to walk around two new areas. It is an old steam locomotive that has been mothballed next to a library. The locomotive is open to the public and you are free to climb into the cab area and take pictures. The river behind the train is also nice.
